Nothing amazing here... just ok image quality

Summary: Either people have lower expectations in terms of image quality or I got a lemon. I'm comparing mine to Canon S410 that I also own. Issues with this camera: 1. Camera keeps switching 'scenes' in Auto mode and it's often choosing incorrectly: a) It tries to do tracking when no tracking is required b)...
Summary: I bought this camera to replace a Fujifilm f100 finepix camera that I loved after doing a lot of comparison reading on different models. I seldom ever give any credence to people who write a review after only having the camera for a couple of days, especially when they actually admit in writing that...
Summary: I have a Canon SD1100is and was very pleased with the picture quality. I then purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMCZS7 and was blown away by the quality and picture clarity. But I missed having a small camera like the SD1100 to take to parties etc.
Summary: I feel like Canon has been putting out products that aren't as well-made as before. I'm going to start with the design. I was glad they've added black in their color variation, but on this particular model the black is dull.
Summary: I've had the Elph 300 HS for a few days now and I must say, it feels perfect in the palm of your hands. The buttons feel great to press and the pictures are as snappy as ever. However, with that said, there are a few concerning flaws of this camera that anyone considering purchasing it should know.
Not a bad little camera but some things need improving

Summary: I bought this to replace my old A590IS. I also have a good canon HD video camera and a Nikon D40 dslr. I'm going to Florida in a week and wanted a great point and shoot that could do it all. I was going to only use the 300 HS and keep my video camera and DSLR at home.
Summary: I bought two of these cameras form Amazon for Xmas presents last year for approximately 2/3 of the price it's currently being advertised for. I bought one black and one silver and I must say for me the black was very rough to handle, like holding a sandpaper case!
Summary: Having had this camera for nearly a year, I feel in a position to explain some of the drawbacks I've encountered. Firstly, the flash: it's so near the edge of this tiny camera that it's very easy for a stray finger to partially obscure it.
Great, wanted it to last more than a year though!!!!

Summary: Its a year and two months and a severe lens fault occurring, which at least will mean a two year warranty at £30 would probably be cheaper than me now having to replace it! With another more robust model!!!
